The Master Painter & Dynamite Legend Debuts a Limited Collectible
May 14, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Lucio Parrillo and Dynamite join together to debut a limited edition variant cover for Vampirella, available right now only on Indiegogo. Parrillo stands in rare air as one of the most in-demand cover artists of today, and he’s going on over a decade of close collaboration with Dynamite. Even more sweet items are available as rewards to fans who support Lucio’s latest.
“Vampirella is one of my favorite characters that I love to paint,” said Lucio Parrillo. “Because of the situation in the world with the Coronavirus, we need your support more than ever. Thank you very much for your support!”
This highly collectible variant cover is available with or without logo “trade dress,” as a black and white variant, in bundles, and with options signed and/or remarked by the legend himself. To truly marvel at the details in his brushstrokes, fans can add on a high-quality lithograph. Printed on #100 Euro Silk White stock at 18 by 24 inches, all it’s missing is a frame to be the perfect focal piece of a fan’s Vampirella collection.
For the high rolling super fan of Parrillo, he’s even offering up the actual original one-of-a-kind painting itself. Shipped with absolute care, this is a truly tantalizing option for art collectors.
“We’ve had the great pleasure of working with Lucio for many years, and each and every time he sends in a cover, it’s just amazing,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher.” We wanted to create something special that helps Lucio and us to be in touch with fans as well as celebrate Vampirella’s 50th Anniversary, and creating this cover allows that. This is such an incredible cover, Lucio wanted to do something that he’s never done before. He’s offering the original art cover painting available for sale to one lucky fan exclusively on the campaign! We thank the fans who support us and our creators.”
Lucio Parrillo is soon approaching 50 depictions of the Daughter of Drakulon through his career. Parrillo doesn’t just “do” any ordinary cover for his pieces – each is painstakingly crafted by the Italian artist with traditional painting techniques. Through his prolific career, he’s worked with publishers including Marvel and DC, and contributed art to the top names in gaming such as Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering.
